Former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who staunchly opposed Communist China during his tenure throughout the Trump administration, cautioned this week of entities controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) procuring American farmland with much of it located near U.S. military bases.

In May, Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) presented the Prohibition of Agricultural Land for the People’s Republic of China Act, which would bar foreign nationals associated with the CCP from buying public or private agricultural land in the United States.

“China’s American agricultural land holdings have increased over tenfold in the last decade, and at the beginning of 2020, investments from China held $2 billion of American agricultural land,” Newhouse declared.

Pompeo tweeted this week, “CCP-controlled entities are now buying up American farmland, much of which is near U.S. military bases. Yet, our diplomats in China can’t even go to the grocery store without someone following them. We have to take this seriously.”

“Let me be clear,” he went on. “China, under the rule of the CCP, is the greatest threat to the U.S. in our history. It touches every facet of American life: military, education, the private sector, our government, and more. It will take a real, unified effort in each for America to stay on top.”

Hawaii, Iowa, Minnesota, Mississippi, North Dakota, and Oklahoma have barred foreign ownership of farmland. Yet, Newhouse pointed out that Chinese investors can get around those limitations if they purchase U.S. corporations that own agricultural land.

In Spring 2022, the Chinese food manufacturer Fufeng Group purchased 300 acres of land near Grand Forks, North Dakota, roughly 20 minutes from the Grand Forks Air Force Base, where some of the United States’ most sensitive military drone technology is based. Furthermore, a new space networking center is located at the base. One North Dakota senator said the base handles “the backbone of all U.S. military communications across the globe,” CNBC reported.

The U.S.-China Economic and Security Review Commission stressed “the location of the land close to the base is particularly convenient for monitoring air traffic flows in and out of the base, among other security-related concerns.”

Florida GOP senator Marco Rubio declared, “It is dangerous, foolish, and shortsighted to allow the Chinese Communist Party and its proxies to purchase land near U.S. military installations. This is something we must address.”

“We hail from the greatest country in the world, and there is simply no reason we should be reliant on a communist country like China for our food supply. If we begin to cede the responsibility over our food supply chain to an adversarial foreign nation, we could be forced into exporting food that is grown within our own borders and meant for our own use. Conversely, by bolstering American agriculture, we can create jobs, strengthen our economy, and enhance our national supply chain into the future,” said Rep. Newhouse.
